-- In order to be considered for submission, essays must compare at least two literary works from different linguistic traditions.
-- Citations should include both the original language and the English translation.
-- Papers should be no longer than 25 pages in 12 point font, and should b properly formatted and documented in MLA style
Portals also invites short poetry translations. Submissions should include a copy of the original and an additional 2-5 page explication of the translation. Poetry translations will be published in tandem with the original. Please submit the original with complete citation.
All submissions are to be sent via e-mail as an MS-Word attachment. Submissions must include a 250-word abstract and a cover sheet including name, address, telephone number e-mail address, school affiliation, and current academic standing; your name should not appear anywhere else in the proposal, since this will be a blind selection process.
